Self Confidence Saturdays with Torrid & Link Up On the Edge #48

If I am being honest, which I always try to keep it real and honest here, I am feeling quite lazy and don’t much have it in me to write something of substance today. Don’t misunderstand, it’s not that I don’t have anything to say. I have plenty to say, in fact. But I need some time to focus and put all of my ideas in order so I can deliver you the best content possible. So for today, to kick off the weekend, I am just going to share with you this pretty wrap dress from Torrid.

Peach is not a color that I am generally drawn to, but there was just something so pretty and summery and feminine about this dress that caught my attention,.  So I gave it a chance in my closet and I’m glad I did. I picked this up a few weeks ago at Torrid Salmon Run Mall and I wore it to my son’s kindergarten concert earlier this week.

*This is not a sponsored post. I am just a huge fan of Torrid and what they represent and the products and amazing customer service that they offer!

Speaking of Torrid Salmon Run Mall, they are hosting another Selfie Self Confidence Saturday this Saturday, June 17, at their Salmon Run Mall location in Watertown, New York. Here is what it’s all about (directly from their Facebook page:

    • And I love both looks on you so much, Laurie! That’s the fun of being into fashion…we can change our styles and looks every day and never get locked into one single signature style! You always look amazing in whatever outfit you showcase on your blog. Thanks so much for being so inspirational!

    Have a wonderful day!

  11. I love the idea of a wrap dress, and think they look so pretty on everyone else, but I can’t seem to find one that will work for me. Love this color on you!

    • Thank you, Lana! I can never find one that fits my bust properly and I always have to wear some sort of camisole underneath to cover my boobs! Ha! I just need to invest in some cuter camisoles. I was not happy with what I had to choose from in my closet.


  12. I could not agree more: if you feel good in it, your confidence automatically outshines anything you’re wearing.

  13. You look so radiant! I love this pretty dress!

    • Thanks so much, Debbie. I remember I had a peach outfit when I was younger that my mother chose for me and I hated it! I am wondering if that has caused my somewhat dislike for the color. But I really do love this dress! Have a fabulous weekend, my friend.

  31. YOU GO GIRL! What a fabulous campaign for this retailer and you’re the perfect support person for their efforts. You look amazing. Because of you, I shopped in a Torrid store recently and was pleasantly surprised by the number of items that would’ve fit well into my wardrobe but I resisted the urge to splurge and bought only one top. It’ll show up soon on the blog 😎.


    • Wow, thanks, Rena! I am so glad you liked the selection in Torrid! The girls who run my local store are so amazing! We had such afabulous time yesterday. I can’t wait to see your Torrid top!


  32. Beautiful dress Shelby! I love the colors and the shoes. I have you as a favorite pick on my blog:)

  33. Hello! The dress is adorable and looks great on you! You’re posts are always fun, whether full of meaningful content or short and sweet. Thank you for hosting. 🙂

  34. Very pretty dress! Peach isn’t a colour I wear often (which is ironic given my name!) but it’s a lovely shade for summer. You look fantastic!
